Charles Mau was born in Germany, but he immigrated to the United States in the 1870s and settled in Oakland. He would go on to design a great number of impressive structures on both sides of the bay including Alameda’s Masonic Temple which is said to be the last intact structure that remains from the island’s once thriving Victorian commercial center.

The home we feature today is an amazingly well preserved example of mature Queen Anne architecture. Not only have the exteriors survived mostly intact, but the interiors are simply stunning with an astounding amount of period detail including large quantities of woodwork in original unpainted condition.
